Founded in 1999, the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals is the largest Hispanic business association in the U.S. NAHREP works to advance sustainable Hispanic homeownership through advocacy, education, and facilitation of relationships with industry stakeholders and professionals.

“Above all else, NAHREP is an economic mobility organization that believes in building wealth for the Latino community through homeownership,” says NAHREP National Advocacy Committee Regional Director Rachel Bruno.

According to NAHREP’s 2019 State of Hispanic Homeownership Report, Latinos comprise 18.3% of the U.S. population, or 59.9 million people. The report says the Hispanic homeownership rate in 2019 was 47.5%, and the number of Hispanic owner households was 8,156,000.

NAHREP counts more than 40,000 members in 48 states. The association welcomes anyone who has a passion for advancing its mission. However, NAHREP membership offers the greatest value to real estate industry professionals, such as agents, brokers, mortgage loan originators, title agents, closing attorneys, appraisers, and homebuilders.
